Luxury Beachfront Resort of The Year

Luxury Travel Guide Review 2016


Luxury Travel Guide – Asia & Australasia voted Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa ‘Luxury Beach Front Resort of the Year’ in their 2016 awards.

Their Review

Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa is a tropical utopia on the Samoan island of Upolu. The adult-only resort sits on a beautiful stretch of beach and is formed of 29 villa hideaways set in a fragrant oasis of exotic shrubbery.

The Villa’s

The villa’s themselves are simply irresistible. Each enjoys a garden or ocean view and is distinctly South Pacific in its design, with patterned quilts in traditional bedrooms and elements of Samoan flair found throughout. Other luxury features include horizon pools and decking areas, to open-air showers and glass-ceiling bathrooms.

The Staff

The spirited Samoan staff are also dedicated to making each visitor’s stay as special as possible. We were particularly impressed with the dining opportunities at this resort which boasts contemporary Pacific island cuisine.


The magical Ava I Toga Restaurant and Bar is a romantic dining location set on the pier where you can enjoy a sunset dinner to the sound of the water gently lapping on the shore. Alternatively, Laumosooi Villa Restaurant presents fresh dishes and a weekly FIA FIA night where guests can experience a showcase of traditional wild fire dancing and food.


The resort also hosts a tranquil spa, an enchanting lagoon pool, and an abundance of island activities including snorkelling and surfing.
